Boardwalk Bites & Brews
Our newest food festival celebrates everyone's favorite amusement park foods paired with Santa Cruz County's best craft beers!
Local brewers have been challenged to select (or brew up) a beer that best complements a Boardwalk menu item. With foods ranging from corn dogs and garlic fries to crepes and chocolate-covered bacon, the intriguing combinations offer a little something for everyone.
Meet local brewers, taste great food and sample an impressive list of more than two dozen local craft beers.
